people believe would be more effective. don't forget, there's a lot of history here and joe biden was the person managing the 1994 crime bill, which included the ban on assault weapons. he remembers what happened to democrats after they got past and lost control of the house. >> where could there be some consensus on this issue? >> again, in talking to administration officials about this, who have been involved in some of these sessions, one source said to me that it would be on the background issue. there seems to be a consensus developing that you can close that gun show loophole, require background checks. and the other area is on these high-capacity magazines. if you could limit those high-capacity magazines, then perhaps that would be another way of going at the assault weapons ban without allowing folks to say, you know what, you're taking away my guns because you wouldn't be taking away their guns. you would be just limiting those high-capacity rounds. >> you don't only need to develop a consensus with the republicans, but amongst the democrats you need a consensus because

of sending a message to washington, we don't care what you do. things are going to stay the way they are here in wyoming and not only that, but if you pass some law banning semi automatic guns and magazines and try and arrest somebody, we're going to arrest you, and charge you with a felony. chase going on here? >> well, megyn, you remember when we had the obamacare stuff, the president's health care law, we've had states across the country pass constitutional amendments saying you cannot mandate the citizens of that state to purchase health insurance and we're going to see the tests on that play out in the months and years to come and we've seen states rebel against the law by opting out of the medicare or medicaid provisions of it. we saw that before and now we'll see it again and we're preparing again to see states push back on this. and in this case, it's the response is going to be even more intense because you're dealing with black and white, you're dealing with what the second amendment says. this is a clear discussion where half-- not half, but a huge number of americans believe that

in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says
